Adventure tours are a must do when visiting the pacific coast of Costa Rica.
At Casa Ponte, we have the perfect jumping off point for everything Costa Rica has to offer. Located only minutes from the best tours and parks, there is enough things to do, you will be able to entertain both individuals and groups of all sizes. Our Costa Rica Tour Specialists can review the available options, tour times, and transportation, to customize a plan that includes everything you and your group will want to do during your Jaco vacation in Costa Rica.
We have partnered with the best providers of Jaco ATV tours to ensure that your ride through the jungles and small towns nestled in the hills is perfect. Most Jaco ATV tours range from 2 to 4 hours, but we can work with you to create a customized adventure if you would like more or less time for your ride. In addition to ATVs we also offer 4×4 off-road utility vehicles and dual-sport motorcycles. You can catch some amazing 360 degree ocean and jungle views from atop the mountains overlooking Jaco and Los Suenos, grab a cold drink at one of the several local bars and restaurants along the way, or stop at a waterfall to cool off. This tour is a must do for anyone who loves to ride and wants to experience the adventure of the best Costa Rica ATV tours available.
Zip Line Tours
Jaco offers more than a few zip line tours just minutes in either direction from the estate. Depending on what your group is looking for, we have several recommendations. It is not uncommon to do a combo ATV and Zip Line tour. With the option to stay in the canopy and suspended platforms, hike from line to line, ride an exhilarating superman swing, or finish by repelling down a waterfall, we can help you explore the differences so you can decide which Jaco zip line tour is the best fit. Canopy tours range from approximately 2 to 3 hours and transportation is provided.
From Jaco and Los Suenos, you can catch a boat tour, either private or public, to explore some of the great in-shore and off-shore options of things to do. If you want to explore the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, and visit Mal Pais or Monte Verde, there are daily excursions by boat. You can head over to Tortuga Island and spend a day on the white sand beaches of this pristine reserve. Sunset cruises and sport fishing are both available as well. Costa Rica has some of the bluest water in the world and the best place to see it is from the deck or diving platform on a Costa Rica boat tour.
Longboard or short, we have world class waves. Jaco and the surrounding beaches have some of the most sought after waves by both amateurs and professionals alike. No matter if you have been surfing all of your life or this will be your first time, we can get you with the right tour. Surf lessons are the bread and butter of many of the local surf shops and it is worth letting us help you decide the best instructor based on your needs. Ranging from a few hours to a few days (or more), there are some choice spots to hang-ten or pull big air off the lip of a head-high wave. Jaco surfing tours are available both by land and boat (for the middle ocean breaks and inaccessible areas that some are seeking).
Costa Rica Crocodile tours are most commonly based out of the small town of Tarcoles which is about 30 minutes from Jaco. The Tarcoles River is home to one of the largest populations of Crocodiles in the world. These tours are not like a gator farm you may have visited in the past or have seen on TV, but on a boat where you are feet away from these awesome creatures. Rest assured we only work with the safest and most reliable tour operators, so that your experience is the best. These tours typically include a local style breakfast, transportation, and range in time from 2 to 5 hours. Crocodile tours are a great place to also see the myriad of river birds, lizards, and other wildlife in Costa Rica.
There are several great coffee estates with active plantations that are available as a walking tour. Costa Rica coffee is grown in the higher elevations of Costa Rica and for that you will need to leave the beautiful beach areas and travel a few hours into the mountains. We can arrange for either private or shared transportation with stops along the way to shop in some of the small towns along the route and all food and beverages included. Although not very near Jaco, this is still a great way to see how coffee is grown and processed before you buy it at your local supermarket. The tours offer tasting rooms and interactive learning so it is fun for groups of all ages. This is a great excursion to pair with a volcano tour as well since there are options to do both in the same area.
Bird Watching Tours
Costa Rica boasts a huge population of both migratory and non-migratory birds. From the colorful and loud Scarlet Macaw, to a number of raptors and too many other species to mention here, this is a birding paradise. Jaco Bird watching tours are available and can be customized based on the type of bird you are most eager to find and the best areas and time of day when you are most likely to see one. Let our experts put together the best package for you and your group.
